Practicing the Anapanasati Sutta
Saturday, October 16, 2021 - 10:00 am to 4:30 pm
A Full Day Workshop
With Jim Austin
Anapanasati Sutta: The Buddha's road map for using the breath as the foundation for practice.
As practitioners we are introduced to using the breath early on and many of us have been working with the breath for years. Instructions on working with the breath have been passed down for thousands of years and been greatly influenced by commentaries on the sutta. In this workshop we will look at this sutta with fresh eyes, looking closely at how we might use the actual words of the sutta itself to inform and support our practice as lay practitioners. We will be sitting together and practicing the sixteen basic steps of the instructions outlined in the sutta.
In order to attend this workshop, you must be fully vaccinated. You will have to show proof of vaccination at the door, or you may also email the Director with a copy of your proof of vaccination before the workshop.
Ongoing Covid precautions: At this point we are not requiring masks at the Center as proof of full vaccination is required for participants and staff (if you would like to wear a mask, you are welcome to). As an added precaution, if you have cold or flu like symptoms, we ask that you do not attend any offering until you have had a negative quick covid test. At any teachers’ discretion, masks may be required. This will be posted in their offering’s description.
Once you have registered for this offering, you will be sent a confirmation email.
Lunch: A volunteer will provide vegetarian soup, salad and bread at lunchtime. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch or a supplement for the soup, if they prefer. A microwave and refrigerator are available.
